On Wednesday, Bowling Green police were dispatched to the Wood County Hospital regarding a juvenile who allegedly had been stabbed in a fight.

According to the Bowling Green Police Division report, the victim, a 16-year old female, had minor facial injuries as well as a bandage on their right arm.

The victim told police the alleged assailant, a 15-year old male, returned to school that day after a long suspension.

After school, the female was walking with a friend in the 1000 block of Fairview Avenue when a group of five juveniles approached, punching her head and stabbing her right forearm. The group accused the victim of name calling, according to the report.
